We are looking for a qualified and talented Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages (Mainscale / UPS) to teach across the ability range to GCSE and A Level from April or September 2018, to be discussed at interview. You will be working with and supported by an experienced team of strong teachers and leaders. The languages currently taught are French and Spanish and the ability to teach both Languages would be an advantage. The Modern Foreign Languages department is very strong and keen with a new Head of Department who is determined to ensure that every child benefits from learning a language at KS3 and KS4 but also KS5. If you want to be part of a team where you will help make a lasting impact on your students, rapidly accelerate their progress and immerse them in the culture of the language that they have chosen, come and join us.
